Correct.  For each jar, Ivy needs an ivy.xml file that describes that 
jar's dependencies (so that Ivy can fetch dependencies of dependencies).

Some jars come with the ivy.xml embedded inside, but that is not common 
practice.  The easiest way to get a jar's ivy.xml is to run "ant 
resolve" when you next have a network connection.  That also downloads 
the jars, of course.
